Chicken Egg Drop Soup

When our 5 year old complained of a bad throat after an eventful evening at a splash pool party followed by endless helpings of ice creams, the only thing that would make his throat feel better is soup ! This is the ultimate comfort food for anyone with a bad throat!

Here goes the recipe.

2 cups water
1/4 boiled chicken breast roughly shredded
1 stick Lemon grass
